The Beans Have Been Spilled!
Minecraft Middle-Earth x No Kid Hungry!

Editor's Note by mapthor
After 8ish months of keeping my mouth shut, I can finally talk about the Charity Stream! It’s crazy something like this is actually happening on our server. I remember back in 2017 where we were lucky to have a Youtuber make a video about us. And now here we are, a major charity organization with a huge Minecraft Youtuber raising money for the kids. You truly love to see it. Regardless, I hope everything goes smoothly this Friday. And if it doesn’t, we got a drinking game to keep us occupied. Good luck to all the team members helping out and let’s help the kids!

Happy Sailing,

Anorien - Lead: @draonic_slayer | In Progress
Report by Draonic_Slayer

Time seems to go past so quickly, yet another 2 weeks have gone by. In the Pelennor, most of section 6 is near completion, with a few small details and houses to finish for that section. The Final part of the Pelennor to be completed is Section 5, which boarders with Harlond and should signify the end of the project. In the OsgoFields, everything has happened according to Badger. There were jobs ran by both Rudo and Hyper, with Beetle completing the river vegetation in the area.


Cair Andros – Lead: @Andrewpioneer | In Progress
Report by Andrewpioneer

Outer yard detailing has begun, temporary tent concepts have been placed. The secondary wall is now almost completed. The three gate cliff side entrance into the inner keep has been started and almost finished. Progress has also been made with cliff detailing jobs, most of the cliffs of Cair Andros have now been finished. Planning has just begun on the final section of the fort, building in that area should start sometime this week.


Harlond – Lead: @Mershy | In Progress
Report by Mershy

Plots are slowly being done and the market area looking great. I've had a few chats with Swe about the outside of the Harlond gate so look out for that. Also new plots are currently on hold due to the charity stream but will resume afterwards.


Lond Daer – Lead: @mattlego | In Progress
Report by Wyattrox03

Work has continued in the old city, Orruss finished up the temple and more plots have been completed by Commoners. The canals are also progressing under work led by Hypr, and a suspicious bit of planning has appeared over the fort district.


Moria – Lead: @DoctorDaom | In Progress
Report by Mershy

Slow and steady wins the race with Moria, Daom has been doing bits and pieces but nothing too substantial the past 2 weeks.

This Week's Question:

@Exeterkered What, no replies yet??? Fine, fine... Guess I'll reply then!

Bagshot Row. Row of small 'holes' in the lane below Bag End. (Said to have been so named because the earth removed in excavating 'Bag End' was shot over the edge of the sudden fall in the hillside on the ground which later became the gardens and earthwalls of the humbler dwelling.) [...]
(Nomenclature of the Lord of the Rings)

Bagshot Row was named because earth was shot into the lane while excavating Bag End.
